San Francisco Giants:Options For The Last Spot On The Bench
By Gary Oversen
4 of 6
Adrianza is a defensive specialist who would be very valuable, if the Giants had anybody playing the infield who wasn’t already Gold Glove material. Sure, there might be a few times that the team is tired, and it would be nice to have a player like him, But Tomlinson fills that role already, and there are still a few more in the minors who would be able to fill in for a short time.
Adrianza has been a wonder in the field, but his batting average of .253 lifetime in 10 seasons in the minors kind of tells you who he is. And it would take an amazing offensive spring for Adrianza to hold down the final spot.
